Where the Cloud Touches Down: Simplifying Data Center Infrastructure Management

Thursday, July 25, 2013
10:00 AM PT/1:00 PM ET

In most data centers, DCIM rests on a shaky foundation of manual record keeping and scattered documentation. OpManager replaces data center documentation with a single repository for data, QRCodes for asset tracking, accurate 3D mapping of asset locations, and a configuration management database (CMDB). In this webcast, sponsored by ManageEngine, you will see how a real-world datacenter mapping stored in racktables gets imported into OpManager, which then provides a 3D visualization of where assets actually are. You'll also see how the QR Code generator helps you make the link between real assets and the monitoring world, and how the layered CMDB provides a single point of view for all your configuration data.

The BYOD Security Dilemma

A summary of the report lists several questions IT should ask when formulating their policy:

•How do you comply with regulations on records retention and destruction in a BYOD environment?

•How should a device be configured to receive and transmit corporate data?

•What happens to data and its audit trail when an employee leaves the company?

•What type of passwords should be used?

•What kind of encryption standard should be required?

There are security tools out on the market that address some of these concerns, such as the capability to connect a smartphone to the corporate network using virtual private network (VPN) technology.

Also, VMware introduced a technology called Horizon Mobile, which essentially runs a smartphone as a virtual instance within an employee’s personal smartphone. The product is going to become available in the second quarter of 2012, says Steve Herrod, chief technology officer at VMware.
